raymond." do you know what today is? today is a very, very special day. today is the day one year ago exactly on this day i found the cutest dog. >> was it a year ago? >> today. i didn't know but -- >> oh! >> one year ago. do we have the video? let's see it. because i want to see the selection process. >> i'm so excited. >> i really was. hi. i hear you. i hear you, kevin. oh, my god! >> it was such a great day. >> and they lived happily ever after. >> he's so adorable. >> there he is.
he won't go potty on your terrace. >> two problems. so we have news about prince harry. first of all, if you were watching nbc last night, there was a really great special about how harry trekked across antarctica for this thing called south pole heroes and he went with a bunch of people. >> veterans, right? >> yeah. war veterans. look, if you ever wondered if he had any ounce of entitlement in him, you would have learned that there's not one bit after watching this thing. they attempted to race 130 miles over ten days, minus 40 degrees, pulling 145 pounds of supplies. take a look at the blisters on his feet. and he wasn't complaining. but take a look. >> day one, i got a hot spot. day two, i just let it manifest into a blister. makes it worse. whatever it was is now popped and something else there as well. and what's really weird is i can't begin to describe to you how sore that is. but you can't even see it.
but, yeah, count myself lucky that i've got feet. >> he said i count myself lucky to have got feet. >> yeah. he said he had a hot spot. he is a hot spot. >> he is a hot spot. >> i'm old, but i'm not stupid and i'm not blind, but almost. >> did you read the news? >> it's all over every -- and we can't see because there's a new reality series. >> this says that he's apparently -- >> planning a wedding and a baby. >> big, big surprise to all the ladies who are on a reality show called "i want to marry harry." >> this is a ryan seacrest show. 12 ladies think that they are going to marry prince harry. >> it's not the real -- it's an impersonator, look-alike. and i'm sorry, hoda, but -- >> what? >> i don't want to say what i'm thinking. how would they not know it's not harry? >> well, they were told by ryan seacrest, who everyone believes.
i would believe it if ryan seacrest said do you want to meet harry? apparently, this guy dyed his hair red and looked princely and so all these girls were vying for his attention. and now they realize they get? guy who's not prince harry. >> do they realize how many centuries they set women back each time they do a reality series like this? >> i know, but it's good. it begins airing on fox in may. >> there is some sad news, though. trace adkins, good friend of our show. we like trace a lot. his wife, wanda, filed for divorce. there was speculation there has been some problems. they're not calling it a conscious uncoupling. >> they're just splitting. >> married 16 years, three beautiful daughters. remember the fire and the whole -- the whole thing was destroyed and they -- well, they built again and they i think had some problems but worked at it. so we're sorry about that. >> he had some substance abuse issues he was dealing with and he entered rehab in january. and i think you guys might
remember they were on a cruise and there was some trace adkins impersonator and he got into a fight with him. anyway -- >> we're sorry about that. we just hope those women don't get into any kind of an altercation on their reality show. >> you never know. >> don't go on a cruise ship. >> here is -- >> i thought i'd never say those words. unless it's carnival. >> here you go. here's an experiment. this is one of those great social experiments. they did this in germany. they had a guy who was walking through sort of a city square and he dropped his wallet. >> over 50 times. >> 50 times. >> he wanted to see what people would do, would they pick it up, would they give it back to him. we're going to watch. but guess how many people returned it. >> okay. this is -- >> so 43. it goes all the way up to 49 of the 50 returned it. >> but let's -- i wish we could see the person who tried to walk off with it. >> doesn't that tell you the truth?
people generally -- like i lose everything. >> hoda. >> let me tell you, everything. i was at a broadway show on saturday, my phone was gone. it was vanished into thin air as usual. some guy said, did you lose a phone? i said, probably. and i did. he said, his daughter gave it to one of the ushers. i looked around, and some guy on the side, another guy who worked at the theater, said, you lost a phone. is it pink? and he held it up and he had it in his hand. >> you're so blessed, hoda. >> but i think for the most part -- i believe that stat. i believe that 49 out of 50 people would find you, give it back, not take your cash, not take your credit cards. >> you think people are basically wonderful and decent and honest? >> yes. do you? >> not necessarily. i've lived longer. okay. i hope they are. but people can disappoint you. this is something i don't agree with. female shoppers. are you normal? >> they did a poll to find out how much shopping we do. they say women shop for clothes five times a month. on average, we try on seven
pieces of clothing per trip and walk away with one. now -- >> which means you try on 40,000 pieces of clothing during your lifetime, depending on how long you -- >> when we were kids, my parents would take us to the mall every weekend, that was our weekend outing and it was every single -- we get in the call, we're going to tyson's corner and we spent the whole day there. >> you spent the whole day there. >> trying on things, not buying things, putting it back, having lunch, walking around, looking at people, trying on more clothes. putting it back. that's all we ever did. so i get that a lot of people go and try things on. but i don't enjoy shopping. >> i'm not one of those women. we would love to know if you are. men shop two times a month. >> they don't have many -- they don't hate their bodies. okay? they're fine. >> even if they should, they don't. >> how great it would be to be a guy and not care. >> it's so true. you guys -- you see every pound we gain -- >> but you're like, what? i'm good. >> you can be looking over your gut and you'll see our butts, that's right. >> so this is my favorite time of every thursday. and this one is especially
perfect. especially because we've had such a fun week. let's end it on a high note. >> we have a show tomorrow. >> this song -- this song is by j. lo. you would think the title would be "i love you papi," because that's the title. but it's not i love you papi. it's i luh ya papi. ♪ i didn't see it but i see it now ♪ ♪ i think i love you and i need you now ♪ ♪ haven't had anyone like you in a while ♪ ♪ i luh you papi i luh luh luh you papi ♪ >> i just like the chorus.

papers this week. >> yeah. we've been separated for two years. so i've been dating for two years. and i've never had more fun in my life. i'm doing in my late 30s what most people did in their 20s. >> sure. >> how do you handle it? if there's someone you're dating -- they don't ever come to your home? >> no, never. i made one big mistake and did introduce one person to my kids. i think it's a very tricky thing. >> yeah. you've got to think of them first. >> right. >> it is very difficult for little ones. >> absolutely. >> it is very difficult for little ones. it's not so easy for big ones either, by the way. even adults sometimes have difficulty with their parents dating. but i think the point is not only the attachment but also the fantasy that they want their parents to be happy but they're in conflict because many kids think and hope that their parents are still going to get together. so that they have an investment in their parents being happy but they also don't want to lose their parents. some of the kids, particularly boys, think their role now is to take care of mom. >> i do think that. my son asks me every day, mom, who are you dating? who are you going to marry? are you going to marry an
athlete? and the truth is i'm trying to teach my son that i'm really happy. and whether i'm with someone or not it doesn't matter. i think you need to have two happy parents. and i love dating and i'm having a blast doing it. but it's really none of my kids' business. >> in the early stages, did you say to your kids, look, here is what's going to be happening? did you explain it or do you just kind of wait to see when it presents itself? >> good question. i never did that. >> you didn't explain? >> no. >> dale, what do you think? >> i think sometimes it is very helpful to explain it, just to let them know, mommy and daddy are not going to be together now and i know that's really hard, and each of us is going to try to meet new people. and i don't think you go into the romance immediately. you just say, you know, there's lots of people out there for friends and you know, we are going to do things. i think one of the other issues is it's different if a person is divorced or widowed because there are issues having to do with going back into the grief and sometimes children have a very different arc of grieving
than their parents do and not all kids do it at the same way. but it's a lesson for kids. it's a lesson for parents. i think it's really interesting that your boys are seeing you happy as you're engaging. and that's very important. so that they don't worry more. >> it's not easy to consciously uncouple. >> thank you so much. get ready to dance. a tap performance like you've never seen. >> but enough about hoda. and quick bites you can whip up at your next party. >> grab your ingredients. we'll get cooking right after this.
